    Neurosci Lett 397:145-8. 2006
    ..CCL18 was only elevated in serum of SLE patients. These data suggest that attraction of activated memory type T cells by CXCL16 might play an important role in the orchestration of immune responses in the central nervous system...

    Arthritis Rheum 58:3388-93. 2008
    ..The aim of this study was to determine whether the (GT)n-repeat length within the HMOX1 promoter region is associated with RA disease severity and radiographic joint damage...

    Department of Rheumatology, Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre and Nijmegen Centre of Molecular Life Sciences, The Netherlands
    Biochem Biophys Res Commun 355:392-7. 2007
    ..These data suggest that binding of oxLDL by soluble CXCL16 does not play a role in atherosclerosis and, although confirmation in larger studies is needed, that circulating CXCL16 is not related to the presence of CVD in patients with RA...

    Hum Mol Genet 16:2552-9. 2007
    ..If replicated, our findings would suggest FcgRIIa*519G as a common risk factor for auto-immune diseases. This may have clinical implications with regard to efficacy or safety of antibody-based immuno-modulator therapies...
